LANE Furniture (éditeur)


After the Second World War, the Lane Manufacture expands in Virginia (United States). Iron signed, the furniture created are mainly realized in American pine wood and Oregon walnut which remarkably symbolizes the American way of life. Throughout the 60s the Lane Manufacture strongly contributes to the brutalist American movement. This word is widely used to describe the architecture from the Bauhaus to Brancusi and Alberto Giacometti sculptures. The brutalist design is characterized by the geometrical and recurring shapes which are abstract, heavy and rough. As a leader of this movement in the United States, Paul Evans is one of the well-known designer produced by Lane.
